Deer and Rabbit are beautiful creatures that looks so harmless yet, they shouldn’t be taken for granted. Deer eat roughly 5 pounds of greens every day on average, and they’ll eat almost any plant if they’re hungry enough, which happens frequently during summer droughts and winter when there’s little to eat in their native habitat: the forests.
Besides, the margins of your garden typically provide ideal hiding locations for rabbits, so they prefer to eat plants along the edges rather than in the middle. To deter rabbits from entering your garden in the first place, remove anything near the edges, such as brush piles or tall grasses.
You can’t ignore the signals of rabbit activity even if you haven’t seen a rabbit hopping about your yard. Plants nibbled or damaged, tree bark chewed off at ground level, young or recently planted plant leaves and stems eaten, and rabbit droppings are all evidence of rabbits in your yard.
In this article, I’ll explain 4 home-made recipes for home-made for deterring Deer and Rabbit. So let’s first start with Deer repellent home-made recipe.
